Landscape photographer, Mike Putnam and his wife Debbie moved to the beautiful Central Oregon town of Bend shortly after their completion of graduate school. Their move to Bend was largely influenced by the stunning natural scenery in the Central Oregon area. Glacier-covered mountains, alpine lakes, old-growth forests, pristine rivers, and lush wildflower meadows have made for amazing subject matter Mike and his life as a landscape photographer.

More About Me

As my career as a landscape photographer has evolved, I have been fortunate. When I initially moved to Central Oregon, an area with remarkable natural diversity and therefore endless subject matter. I already had a career to help support my development as a fine art photographer.

With years of research and fieldwork, my skills as a landscape photographer were refined. Quality has always been paramount in my landscape prints. Every decision regarding my fine art photography was made with the intention of capturing, creating, and presenting the most technically accurate, finely detailed, and most thoroughly scouted fine art landscape photographs. My intention is that viewers of my fine art landscape prints feel as if they are looking out an open window at Oregon’s most beautiful landscapes at the perfect time of day and on the perfect day of the year.

Mike’s Oregon landscape photographs are created using the large format view 4×5 camera, in order to produce large beautiful fine art prints. World-class fine art prints are always his goal when scouting or shooting for photographic purposes. The large transparency size of his 4×5 view camera allows Mike to make larger more intricately detailed prints than are possible with other camera formats.
